Last week we told you that on Sunday afternoon May 19, when our St. Louis Cardinals face off against the Milwaukee Brewers, we’ll also be celebrating Rally Saint Louis Day at Busch Stadium and giving away free Rally STL tees — generously donated by CafePress — in Ford Plaza located behind the bleacher seats in the outfield courtesy of our friends at CafePress.
The Cardinals have offered Rally Saint Louis the opportunity to throw out the first pitch of the game, and many of you submitted nominees.
Here are the finalists with a link to vote below:
- Thomas H.: A diehard Cardinals fan, Thomas was born with a mild case of cerebral palsy which has limited his participation in organized sports. He no longer plays baseball team but does the announcing for many team games for his school from the press box.
- Arthur H.: A resident of Northview Village Nursing Home and in the final stages of cancer, Arthur has never missed a Cardinals game on TV or radio and puts his Cardinals gear each game.
- Emily: She suddenly lost her father to AML suddenly in 2010, and in 2012 was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in her left leg, going from being an active teenager to leg amputation, She has spent many a night at Cardinal Glennon watching Cardinals games, where she just finished chemotherapy three weeks ago.
